Robots, Avatars and Ghost was the result of The Mixed Reality Performance Lab, which responded to dramatic theatre's resistance to new technologies, seeking to investigate where the technology is capable of real-time spontaneous interaction with humans on stage; as well as to investigate how cross-disciplinary performance can incorporate narrative and other elements of the dramatic theatre craft. 


In this work, a custom designed robot created at the Centre for Intelligent Systems Research played the role of Mrs Alving in the last 20 minutes of Ibsen's Ghosts alongside a motion capture operated avatar version of herself.
